10 ft max WITHOUT a permit,but it still has to be flagged and signed with OVERSIZE LOAD.

AT 12FT WIDE permit's are required,day light travel only, NO travel one day prior to a holiday, or on holidays.
13'6" max high without a permit, same restriction's.
the routing on over sized permit's are there due to low clearance obstructions or construction on major thoroughfares.
I suspect that it is on a trailer for the sole purpose of storage at home rather then for travel.

If I was to have a TRAVEL boat this size, it would HAVE to be at least 12ft and around 50ft long, just to justify the cost of said permit's and fuel for the PRIVATE semi that it would take to move it....
my trailer that I hauled boats with NEVER moved without a permit, it was too wide 10ft 6" and was able to slide/extend out to 80ft, but I HAD to be loaded to get a permit,--- SO---I bought a tonka toy YACHT, and tied it down to middle of the trailer, just to GET the permit,--- totally legal !

I wouldn't go very far with that trailer regardless, tires look old and weathered, and a gooseneck trailer would be better.
but the price is right for a little water shack !

On a more serious note- for those that thought Russ sold White Feather too cheap and have been craving another chance at a 57 Cari-Craft -here is your chance! This one appears to be in Sarasota, FL.
Asking price is 16K but it says to "bring all offers". At the cost of having a 57' boat in the yard, don't bid if you don't REALLY want her.
This one has 350 Chevy engines instead of the 427's that Russ was trying to feed.
Active as of this freezing cold day, the 20-somethingth of January 2015.

LOL...no wonder it's so cheap. Project houseboats in the desert can't be easy to sell.
Damn thing came up on a search for Cari-Craft.
At ease, Russ! At ease!
I won't bore anyone with the other one I am scheming on...It hasn't been moved off the dock in Miami since 1991.
